The interest between Hal and Leah is evident fairly early on, but when personal secrets and histories are revealed the attraction moves to a more interesting and romantic level. As it is, it isn’t until the unconventional agreement for an erotic education is introduced that you’ll really feel the sexual tension simmering beneath the surface. The unexpected treat of such a daring storyline adds just the right amount of sexual heat and passion to an otherwise proper couple, which moves the romance along and makes it more plausible. And the historical accuracy is spot-on.

Leah will do anything to secure her sister’s health and happiness, even if it means creating an alter ego and writing for a gossip magazine. Hal, Lord Forster, spent his time during the war working as a spymaster. The war is over, but Hal remains embroiled in political intrigue and is currently using his ship, the Celandine, to provide protection while hunting down a dangerous assassin. He shares his secret with Leah and together they must unveil the killer’s identity, all while engaging in a secret seduction that proves quite the education for them both.
